Monday Menu — tuna in oil

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 8:47 am

Okay, everyone keeps talking about how tuna in oil is SOOO much better so I caved and bought some.

Since, as my grandmother would say, “It’s hot as Hades out!” I think I’m going to make an easy pasta salad with it using whatever’s in the fridge and serve it on a bed of mixed greens.

Right now I’m planning on it being a combo of tuna, Barilla plus elbows, shallots, black olives, red bell pepper, cucumber, celery, carrots, fresh and sun-dried tomatoes, capers, dill, lime juice, and greek yogurt. Sounds pretty good, right?

Have you tried tuna in oil (or is it what you normally eat) and what do you make with it?



  1. I’ve only done tuna in water, but now I’m intrigued! I LOVE greek yogurt – eat it for breakfast every morning with some kiwi or berries and some walnuts or pecans. Yummy. Your recipe sounds wonderful.

  2. That recipe sounds lovely! I’ll have what you’re having. šŸ™‚ I always do tuna in water. I’ve tried oil but I can taste the oil and don’t care for it much.

  3. I’ve only had tuna in water, but everybody tells me it’s better in oil. How did the salad turn out? It sounds delish!

  4. Joann — Try drizzling a little honey on the greek yogurt — heavenly!

    Jenny — I’d only had the tuna in water, but it looks like half of what’s sold in the supermarket is in oil. Who are these consumers?

    Jennifer — The salad was yummy. Hadn’t realized I was out of plain yogurt (and didn’t think vanilla would work, lol) so I had to use fat free mayo, but it made for a light and refreshing dinner.
